David Komie

Position:
Head Coach


David Komie was named Florida Atlantic's head coach in July 2005. He played two seasons for the Owls, graduating in 1985.

Komie began his quest to take FAU to the NCAA tournament by building the best schedule possible, despite a depleted roster. He then went to work on securing a recruiting class that was ranked in the nation's top-20 by tennisrecruiting.net and was no. 2 among mid-majors. Olivier Sajous, who earned the highest national rank in the program' history, was honored as FAU's Outstanding Male Athlete for the 2006-07 year, was among that class. His second recruiting class was also held in high esteem, as it was ranked no. 3 among mid-majors. The importance of building a program at FAU is magnified by his desire to build the best at his alma mater.

In his senior season, Komie went 19-1 at No. 2 doubles on FAU's nationally-ranked team. He was also a standout at Samford, where he played at No. 1 singles and doubles as a freshman and sophomore.

Prior to coming to FAU he served as an assistant for Texas for four years, where he was instrumental in leading the team to four NCAA tournaments and two NCAA regional championships. During his time with the Longhorns, he coached five All-Americans.

Prior to starting his coaching career, Komie practiced law for 16 years. During that time Komie competed in both singles and doubles in the Men's Open, 25's, 30's, 35's and 40's in the Georgia Southern and Texas sections where he earned numerous top-3 rankings including four No. 1 rankings.

Komie is married to the former Maria Moss and has one daughter Lillian (4).
